If your child is not making progress, the school will set up an initial meeting to discuss this in more detail with you and listen to any concerns you may have. Any additional support will also be planned and possible referrals to outside professionals will be discussed with you. We know that parental involvement is identified as having the biggest impact on your child’s learning and well-being. Therefore your support is vital and effective communication is essential in securing the best outcomes for your child.
The decision to add your child to the SEN or AEN register would be made with parents and school working together.
All parents have the opportunity to sign up for parent consultations 3 times a year. Parents of children on the SEN register are entitled to meet at least 3 times a years with the class teacher and SENDCo as part of the plan-do-review process. If these are done within the usual parent consultations, you are entitled to a longer appointment.
